After months of waiting and speculation from the fans of Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik alike, Gigi has finally let the name of her daughter slip through, although the press has still not got a hold of her baby face.
So Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik’s four-month-old angel is named Khai, and we are pretty sure she is just as adorable as her momma.
Apparently, the Hadid-Malik clan is fawning over the littlest addition to their family and are over the moon with what 2020 bought them. Here’s what we know about the name…
The Relationship Timeline Of ZiGi
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have had an on-again-off-again relationship that ended in 2018 and also renewed in 2018. It went kaput in 2019, and finally, the couple got back together in 2020.
Rumors of a baby bump began to swirl soon after and the ZiGi fans, as they love to call themselves, and sure enough Gigi acknowledged her pregnancy later in the year, with Zayn Malik sharing the happy news on social media on September 23, 2020.
Fans were suitably happy for the couple and wished them and their little angel the very best!
The Name & The Tattoo
Zayn Malik has a penchant for tattooing all who he loves on his body, and Gigi’s eyes are on the skin right over his heart, telling the world her eyes ensnared his heart. And now Twitterati has discovered that their daughter’s name has been added to the various tattoos, this one being on his wrist, probably to show the world that Khai, is his heartbeat…
This is what Zayn had to say about his baby girl, “The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, and thankful for the life we will have together x”
The Regent Is Born
The couple has not made any official statement about the meaning of the name yet, in fact, they have never even revealed the face of baby Khai to the world yet. How the world got to know the name was via a subtle change in the bio of Gigi’s Instagram that now reads, “khai’s mom”.
Fans were only too happy to find out the meaning of the word and said that Khai means “crowned” in Arabic whilst Malik means king. In effect, little Khai is the “crowned king”, or should we say queen?
The Name Also Means A Lot To The Hadids
All in the Hadid-Malik clan have been careful to keep baby Khai well hidden in their social media posts with none of the pictures showing her little face.
Yolanda Hadid, Gigi’s mom also put up this picture recently with a shoutout to her mom. Meanwhile, it’s interesting to note that Gigi’s paternal grandmother bore the name Khairiah while Bella’s middle name is also Khair.
So could it be an ode to all the gorgeous women in the Hadid clan? Fans certainly think so.
